3 Currently Offer The One Plan for 3G / HSDPA Speed but not for 4G this is coming next year and it is to be seen if the One Plan at current prices covers 4G Speed I doubt this although they may offer unlimited Plan at a Price while keeping the current none 3G/HSDPA Plans at the price they are.
If 4G does not offer unlimited download at a reasonable price people will turn their back on 4G unless their rich.

You need to do some homework on business first, before you run your mouth! It is highly unlikely that Nokia can simply cancel its exclusive contracts with carriers just because Nokia feel to. The most likely way that this is possible, is if, included in the contract, there is a clause that allows Nokia to cancel exclusivity at any time, which is highly unlikely.

What is most likely happening here, is that the exclusivity contracts only allow for exclusive rights for a limited amount of time. This is a lot more logical. The evidence that AT&T's exclusivity is only for a 6-month period is evidence of this. Also, if they were dropping exclusivity because of low-sales, and wanted to branch out to other carriers because of this, it won't make incredible sense to do this, because they are low on stock of Lumia phones already. Do you really think if they are low on stock for a few exclusive carriers, they'd have enough to supply all carriers? You need to think before you talk. I am absolutely fed up of ignoramus people spewing their nonsense. They promote negativity, misinformation and unnecessary confusion. Ignorant, illogical people should not be allowed to use the internet, or even interact with other people because of this.

Thing is, the 920 is on EEs other brands, orange and T-Mobile, of which the latter and Three are the only UK carriers that offer unlimited data.

I have mine on T-Mobile, on the £36 full monty plan. So for a phone that in my opinion is far superior and personal than an iPhone while being significantly cheaper on across all networks, I don't see how that is "expensive". EE's LTE price plans are expensive but people need to realise it's also available on T-Mobile and Orange plans.

You people just come and passes stupid comments without any knowledge of the device. just have a look on gsmarena regarding the sale of Nokia Lumia 920, in KSA the pre-order of Nokia Lumia 920 is going full and if anyone pre-order the phone its coming after 2-3 weeks to then... its shows how Nokia Lumia 920 starting taking the market share back from APPLE and LAGGY Software (android) phones.

Don't think EE had exclusivity on the 920 to begin with. think it was just the white variation that was exclusive. sure o2 and phones4u have it.

Nokia is canceling the exclusivity as there is NO SALES of Lumia 920, so they try to push it in all carriers possible so as to see if they increase their 1% market share jajaja. NEVER buy a LUMIA, better buy an android

probably, the junk phone is playing seek and hide game. Microsoft aren't friendly at all. I wish, a new giant, not android overtakes the said micropunk. Just a wish, anyway.
